Birthday Boys

Hello

I had a few male birthday cards to make in December so I'm sharing one of those today ... I know cards for the men often present a little problem so I tend to play it safe using something like the Clearly Besotted Skyline die which is an 'all occasion" die and a scrap of dottie paper


Plus being in the throws of making Christmas cards at the time, it was difficult to shift gear in my brain and put aside the glitter Lol!


But I think a sparkly 'Birthday' word is ok - after all, the guys don't seem to take that much notice 


I now need to come up with an anniversary card for my DH ... We were married January 4th so I'd better get going ... 

Oh, I noticed some of you changed your blog headers so I thought I'd give mine a little lift too, I can never decide what to go for so it may change again but for now I'm happy with it.

Have a lovely day - It's wet and miserable here once again - Roll on Spring!

Till soon

Beautiful card and yes: a little glitter for the birthday works well! I like the colors of your new header!

Tomorrow is your anniversary, congratulations on this special day!!!
Hope you will have a nice day with beautiful weather (it's cold here in The Netherlands with some fog). Enjoy!
The Skylines of CBS are just perfect for boys (-: I am considering purchasing those dies just because of the London Skyline, LOL
Cards for men may have some glitter, I think.

Freezing rain today--had hubby drive me to & from work I'm such a chicken! We saw 4 cars in the ditch on the way home this afternoon! I'm so glad I won't be commuting in bad weather much longer! Wonderful BD card & glitter is certainly appropriate for a celebratory card, even for a guy! Happy New Year, my friend! Everyone is updating their blogs making me want to as well, but I'm not talented enough to do it myself. Love yours!

Love this and you know I love that die....I need to use mine...I will have to look at some of my challenges and see if I can fit it in...another masterpiece my friend!

A little glitter is a sparkling addition to a male card. That skyline die is perfect for masculine birthday cards. And adds a modern twist that I just love. And I love your new blog header too!
XXXXX
